Rahma Clinic Edible Forest Snack Garden
The Rahma Clinic Edible Forest Snack Garden is a new resource for Syracuse providing free health care services at 3100 South Salina St. The Snack Garden edible forest ecosystem will provide an alternative snack source and showcase a model which can then be replicated in many other communities within Syracuse and beyond.
The Clinic knows that an important part of health is nutrition and healthy eating. They seek to address the issues confronting the southside of Syracuse, where there are currently no grocery stores providing fresh produce and healthy food choices. Young and old are often tasked with finding food options at local corner stores, which often specialize in pre-packaged sugar laden snacks and processed “foods”. Because of this the southside is commonly referred to as a food desert. More healthy food options are needed for southside residents and visitors, which is the goal of the Rahma Clinic Edible Forest Snack Garden.
Started in the summer of 2011, the Rahma Clinic is excited to be able to provide wellness services both within and outside their doors on Syracuse's southside.
